The sound of a motorcycle is distinct to its make and model. Harley-Davidson, a legend in motorcycles, has built its reputation around its loud and unique sound. That thunderous rumble expresses emotion, passion and enthusiasm. If your faith made a recognizable sound, how would others describe it? Would they think it was bold?
I know women–role models–who sustain me when I encounter people who believe faith is a private topic we shouldn’t discuss publicly. They encourage me to travel to the beat of my own engine and to find my own sound.
The sound of my faith is round and full and as loud as the wind. Maybe it’s too loud sometimes–but I don’t apologize. I don’t muffle this sound. I have listened to and released my sound, and I encourage you to do the same.
This message was adapted from “What is the sound of your faith” written by Karris Golden that first appeared in the March 2007 issue of Cafe magazine. Today we remember Catherine of Siena, theologian, who died in 1380.
